Dear Riyadh Botnet Hunter: Nothing To See Here, Please Move Along

Click for larger image.

I like to frequently review my blog referrer logs, sometimes for sheer entertainment (lots of losers looking for Fergie pr0n) but mostly for open source intelligence -- blogs can sometimes be just like great big honeypots.

I was reviewing my logs a little earlier and ran across this referrer (above) from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, looking for a "botnet download".

At the moment, I haven't determined whether this falls into the "humorous" category, or the "scary" category. Maybe both.
